Alexander Haagen, a major Southern California shopping center developer who, as president of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission in the late 1980s, clashed with Los Angeles Raiders owner Al Davis over proposed stadium seating renovations before Davis announced plans to move the pro football team to suburban Irwindale, has died. He was 91. A longtime resident of Palos Verdes Estates, Haagen died of age-related causes April 26 at an assisted-living center in Beverly Hills, said his son Alexander Haagen III. Haagen began his real estate career in Los Angeles in the late 1940s with his wife, Charlotte, and founded Alexander Haagen Properties in 1963.

In a Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, Paul Albrecht also claimed that the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission encouraged fans to get drunk and unruly because it was good for business. Shane Geringer, a former high school linebacker from Agoura, allegedly attacked Albrecht in an aisle of the Coliseum.

As USC fans settle into their seats for today's cross-town rivalry game, there'll be more to talk about than running backs and Rose Bowl parties.

Timing and aim were masterful.

Two members of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission said Wednesday that the Raiders have agreed to play in the Coliseum this fall under a one-year contract that would allow time to make plans for building luxury boxes and improving Exposition Park in later years. "I understand an agreement has been reached, and we will move forward on a state-of-the-art stadium," said County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, a longtime member of the commission.

The dispute between the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission and the stadium's principal tenant, the Los Angeles Raiders, has reached an impasse that could result in the football team's leaving the facility once a new stadium can be built elsewhere. If that happens, the fault will lie with the current commission majority.

If you are not familiar with the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission, you're hardly alone. The officials who oversee the 84-year-old stadium near downtown are a collection of nine prominent business leaders, elected officials and political appointees who normally work out of the spotlight. Each member gets free game tickets and entry to the Coliseum's "hospitality tent," among other things.
